Those of QuotesChimp who reside in no-fault states can save premium dollars
by agreeing with your company that the first benefits to be paid will come
from health insurance rather than your auto insurance. According to
Consumers Union, savings of up to 40 percent may be possible from your
personal injury protection premium by utilizing this strategy.

I realize wniitrg that even the worst things that have happened to me (so
far, knock wood) have had happy endings.Phone CallThat phone call from six
hours away down I-40 confirmedmy premonition, the uneasiness I’d felt but
left unspoken. On your own for months now, your absence palpablein the
house, the piano keys untouched, your door closed,we lived for the phone
calls, the updates, satisfiedthe you were doing well, making friends,
learning.But the phone call just before we turned in for the night,the
gentle way she told us you’d been in a wreckleft more questions hanging,
not enough answersto satisfy. You were alive. We hung onto that much.Only
later did we learn the full details—hearing phrasesunfit for the language
of parenting—jaws of life, trauma unit,head-on collision in broad
daylight, breathalyzer tests.Right then, making calls to closer friends, to
family,I threw some clothes into the car, praying ceaselessly,and flew down
the highway, heading west to you.Broken bones will heal; twisted steel can
be replaced.You had your life. We had you broken but whole.They patched you
up, and after only days, we leftyou well attended at the dorm and drove
back home.
